Both programs are local- one ADN at a CC where I work and an accelerated BSN at a hospital based private school. I'm picking the community college. Yes, I completed all of my prereqs, and I did them all through CLEP/online. I took the premed sequence as well (until physics lol). I used 2 sources, Ocean County College and University of New England - Home You can send me a pm if you'd like to talk more. Nursing schools, as you know, are a different animal. As to why they won't take some classes and will take others, is literally, up to the committee at the school. You do need regionally accredited classes, and they need LABS, and they need to be 4 credits each. Intro may or may not count at your school (Intro chemistry, intro biology) but some require science major science- like General Chem 1 w/lab and General Bio 1 w/lab. Just find out the requirements first. Lastly, if you don't mind me saying, the (very) expensive schools you mentioned put debt on your plate that you might rather save for graduate nurse-pratctioner programs. Just saying.
